Optional Protocol to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

January 22, 2014 at 11:31 AM

The full text of the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child on a Communications Procedure can be downloaded here or borrowed from the WAVES library.

This Protocol has been ratified by 10 states and so it wil come into effect in April 2014. It gives children whose rights have been violated the right to complain directly to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.

The three Protocols to this human rights treaty are to protect children against child slavery, child pornography and child prostitution, recuritment of child soldiers in armed conflict and now to give children rights to complain directly to the UNCRC.
